Cert. Denied In "Understanding Evolution" Website Case

Today the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari in Caldwell v. Caldwell, (Docket No. 08-858). (Order List.) In the case, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed for lack of standing plaintiff's Establishment Clause challenge to certain content on an "Understanding Evolution" website created and maintained by the University of California Museum of Paleontology and funded in part by the National Science Foundation. Plaintiff objected to statements on the website declaring that evolution and religion are not incompatible. (See prior posting.)
